in the wake of this very horrible tragedy. >> from the time the united states became a global power and i'm thinking back to the monroe doctrine about the united states and our sphere of influence, you are asking about strategic interest in rebuilding haiti. i do think that there is interest on the part of the united states strategically to engage haiti and make sure that this epic human catastrophe resolves itself, and this is going to take a very long time, but look, the united states was the first one to announce humanitarian help. we're always the biggest contributor when natural disasters happen in the world. no other country on the face of the earth in the history of the world does more to help people in situations like this than the united states of america. we always deliver. the question is, how best to do this? and when you look back since 1992, since the clintons were in office, what you've seen is a dedication of $3 billion from the united states going into haiti. it is still incredibly poor despite all of this effort on the part of the united states and other nations. i

world was weary of this nation. the united states, for example, didn't recognize haiti for the first 58 years of its existence until 1862, a year after the u.s. civil war began. and that was the official beginning of what continues to this day to be a difficult relationship. in 1915, the u.s. sent in a landing force to occupy the nation and the country was in a state of chaos and some said america simply wanted to protect its investments there. whatever the reasons for coming, the americans stayed for almost 20 years. and it was an often brutal occupation. the americans under franklin eleanor roosevelt withdrew in 1934. haiti remained a troubled and deeply chaotic place. 60 years later, they were back and in 1994 under the clinton administration, the american military went in again. this time they came to restore democracy and two years later haiti saw for the first time in its then almost 200-year history a peaceful transition of power from one democratically elected president to another. but then the earthquake and late wednesday afternoon, of course, america returned again. this t

waiting final clearance to actually be adopted and transported to the united states. you know, that's something i have worked on for many years and i'm personally directing we do everything we can to try to find and identify those children who are already adoptable. they have parents waiting for them. a new family in our country and to try to expedite all the paperwork that has to be done to get them to their new homes. >> you mentioned that you held a 15-day-old baby. when you are a mom and the position you are in, what goes through your mind? >> they are there for the grace of god. in a moment of such grave need, i think everybody feels that common humanity. i mean, you are a dad, i'm a mom. you know how you would feel if your child was injured, if your wife had been killed, the mother of your children and how desperate you would be and how you would go anywhere to anybody to try to get help. so i think that we can talk about the plans we have to make and how much it is going to cost and who is going to do what, but the most elemental response is these are people in need. one of the

good people of the country that elect an african-american as the 44th president of the united states of america. when wheeler mentions the inauguration, last yearee election. you know, on the heels of that victory over a year ago there were some who suggested that somehow we had entered into a post-racial america. all those problems would be solved. there were those who argued that because i had spoke of a need for unity in this country, that our nation was somehow entering into a period of post partis partisans. that didn't work out so well. there was a hope shared by many that life would be better from the moment that i swore that oath. as we immediate here today, a year later, we know the promise that that moment has not been fully fulfilled. because of an era of greed and irresponsibility, that sowed the seeds of its own demise and economic troubles unaddressed through the generations, because the banking crisis that brought the financial system to the brink of catastrophe, we are being tested in our own lives and as a nation as few have been tested before. unemployment is at its hi

president of the united states and democratic nominee and they go crazy. bill clinton is accusing obama of busing in supporters. he's saying he stole the caucus. hillary is so depressed. she turns to her husband and says, maybe the problem is not my campaign, maybe they just don't like me. chris: let's go to new hampshire. kelly. new hampshire was the second big round. hillary clinton upset barack obama at that point. a lot of people thought she won, because people liked her. there was empathy and she showed weakness in terms of her emotions. the clintons apparently read that differently. they said we beat this guy because we went for the jugular and we're going to do it again. >> the mind-set was a reluctance to allow her sensitive side to be seen, in part because remember she had been first lady and although not the softness of first ladies, that east wing influence when you're talking about the first woman president was uncomfortable if them when they wanted to portray her as tough enough for the job. to allow her to be seen as a softer figure they didn't think was politically

the united states in the early '80s for the soviets, it was actually a short reduction in arms, way below debating on how you count anywhere from 70 to 90 plus% below where we were in 1967. warheads got smaller as accuracies improved, etc. ironically, we are now seeing with iran and pakistan and north korea, the prospect of a world because of proliferation where you're going to have a whole bunch of countries who have these weapons, who already have them, but the proliferating them, at least north korea's case, where the iranians if they get it, there wasn't anybody over there doing that kind of thinking. and did you get in the mideast as a result of the iranian nuclear weapon, you could easily get saudi calling up islamabad saying would you guys like to sell if you? none of these countries i waited, both united states and russians the better part of 20 years to do, which was think through these things, learn from some experiences and with the cautions instinct of kennedy and khrushchev and khrushchev had to restrain castro who is ready for nuclear war even if his arms were up liter

clinton, why does it take a disaster of this scale and magnitude away from the united states to create this kind of bipartisanship? >> well, i think that when something like this happens inside the united states we act in the same way. i think that it reminds us of our common humanity. it reminds of us needs that go beyond fleeting disagreements. whatever our policies are don't seem to matter much when people are dying, and hungry, and sick. i think it's just a natural human response. just as people's disagreements are a natural human response and in normal times can be healthy. it wouldn't be healthy for america if, in normal times, we had no political debates. and it would be perverse if in a time like this, we let lesser matters keep us from joining hands. >> president bush, you're back. >> indeed. it's a little nostalgic. i'm glad i've come back for this purpose. i must confess, i really -- i miss you as a person but i don't miss the spotlight. >> i think i'll take that as a compliment. >> yes. >> good luck to you both. thank you. >> thank you so much. >> and up next, we'll

death. in the case of haiti, lots of it. the united states seems to be the punching bag for the nations of the world most days. we're called everything from imperilists to warmongers and worse. but once again, in the face of a horrible human tragedy, it's americans who show up first, do the most and expect the least in return. whether it's a tsunami in asia, a famine in africa, or an earthquake in pakistan or haiti. the world knows that while the chinese might export cheap consumer products and the saudis might found oil from the ground and sell it to the world and argentina might ship some beef for the world's marketplace, that when it comes to a time of human tragedy, it's the united states that will export its most precious commodity. its generosity. within hours of the horrific earthquake that hit haiti, americans were pouring record donation in relief efforts of organizations like red cross and salvation army. the united states military dispatched ships, planes, and thousands of personnel to the scene. american relief workers lined up to go to haiti and risked death and dis
